Diantha I. Matthews, a junior at All Saints Cathedral School, is the winner of the 2017 Florida Caribbean Cruise Association children’s essay contest. “Your essay topic, ‘What will cruise ship passengers learn about my country? What will they remember most and hold with them?’ was extremely gratifying and it took the readers on a fulfilling journey of what the U.S. Virgin Islands has to offer,” wrote Nicole George-Patterson, Customer Care coordinator for the association. Diantha, who was sponsored by her English teacher Dena Langdon, won the St. Thomas District contest, senior division, as well.
